Mizzou Alum Jeremy Maclin Injured In Eagles-Browns Game

Former Missouri wide receiver Jeremy Maclin injured his hip in his Philadelphia Eagles' 17-16 win on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, according to Philly.com. While Maclin played the entire game and caught seven catches for 96 yards, he is day-to-day with a hip flexor strain and hip pointer, coach Andy Reid told the media.

"He battled through it," Reid said. "You got to give him credit for that. He got himself through it, but he's awful tender today."

While it's unclear if Maclin will be ready to play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, the Eagles' depth problems at receiver might force Reid's hand a bit. Jason Avant hurt his wrist against the Browns and Riley Cooper fractured a collarbone. DeSean Jackson and Damaris Johnson are the only two receivers not banged up, and if Maclin is out, Philadelphia will likely need to add a receiver to the active list.

In his fourth year out of Mizzou, Maclin has 2,692 receiving yards for his career. He's yet to produce a 1,000-yard season in the NFL, with his closest attempt being a 964-yard campaign in 2010. Maclin played two seasons at Missouri, recording 1,055 yards in 2007 and 1,260 yards in 2008.
